If you have expertise in a certain area, you could offer to mentor someone who is just starting out in that field. Say you have worked in journalism for many years you’ll have a wealth of advice that would really help out someone who is about to go into their first job. This is a great way to ‘leave the ladder down’ once you have found success, help others up behind you. Do something for a good cause. There are so many ways you can do this. One idea is to hold a fundraising event such as a Pink Ribbon Breakfast, which raises money for the Breast Cancer Foundation NZ. I hosted a breakfast myself and it was a great way to get together with friends, while also raising money for a cause we all felt passionate about. More recently, I organised a Ladies Lifeline Charity Lunch, where people bought tickets to come along and enjoy lunch with eight influential New Zealand women. All proceeds went to Lifeline, an amazing 24/7 helpline for people struggling with a wide range of issues, including relationship and work problems, mental makeup issues, grief, abuse, bullying and loneliness. And every Christmas I help the Salvation Army with their Adopt a Family programme.
